Carol was one of the millions of people who played the 'Dragon Tamers' virtual reality computer game. Along with her partner, a dragon called Sam, she managed to become the strongest player in the game.
When the games goes offline, she's called in to help along with the second strongest player Ceirin and a beginner called Ellen, who was brought in by accident. As a strange monster destroys areas of the game, the trio of humans and their partners set out to find this creature and defeat him, and in doing so save the game world.
It seems simple enough, but there's a catch - if they die in the game, they die in the real world too.
Emma Maree Urquhart's debut children’s fantasy novel Dragon Tamers was self-published in the UK when Emma was 13, with sales of over 35,000 copies, and has been traditionally published in Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Swedish, Greek, and Portuguese. Emma is now in her late 20s and is a software tester, spending her days finding creative ways to break websites and apps and her nights finding creative ways to break fictional characters. She lives in the north of Scotland and on the weekends can be found learning roller derby, binge drinking tea and taking long brainstorming walks in the woods.
